Bravery


There was a period of time where Avery was NOT into extracurriculars. She became nervous and clingy in new situations, sending us into a bit of a panic knowing that kindergarten was around the corner and we wanted her to be ready and excited.

Our approach was to give her MORE extracurriculars and reinforcement for being brave in each situation. She was put into swimming lessons again after not having been in swimming since last summer. She had three sessions of lessons in a row and made HUGE improvements.

With exposure to ballet, tennis and yoga, not to mention a new session of swimming lessons in August, she's rising to the challenge and each experience is making her a more confident and well-rounded kiddo.
